When restoring and redesigning gardens, considering how light travels through, in and around your trees and plants can make all the difference.
What I mean to say can most be demonstrated through pictures. I hope you can see my point.
Now everyone may or may not see the long view here but it is important to consider angles, topography, plant size, plant form, colors, leaves and flowers, when determining how to design gardens and landscapes. Once gardens and trees are installed it becomes even more important, as things develop and grow, how to properly prune and shape for the greatest longterm property value.
This subject does not conclude here. This is only scratching the surface. But this time of year as the days grow longer the appreciation of light in and around our gardens grows.
